The United States Air Force is a proud brand of the United States military. You can choose to join the Navy, Army, Marines or National Guard as well, so why should you consider joining the Air Force instead of those other branches?
1. You’ll probably end up flying in both planes and helicopters no matter which branch of the military you join. But there’s no better chance of frequent flight and pilot training for you than if you join the US Air Force. This is the branch of the military that specializes in air combat, air maneuvers and transportation.
2. If the technology of flight fascinates you, you’ll have no better opportunity to learn that technology and be a part of the development of new flight technology than in the Air Force.
3. The Air Force prepares you for civilian jobs related to flight. Many veterans go on to be private pilots or airline pilots, traffic controllers, or they work in the flight technology fields developing new aircraft. With Air Force training and service, you’re highly desirable to employers once you leave active duty. Or you can make the Air Force your career and be on the cutting edge your entire life.
